Hilarity Bites Comedy Club feat. Scott Bennett, Danny Posthill, and host Katie Mulgrew
Replacing Dave Johns, due to filming commitments:
Stylishly shirted, Yorkshire-born Scott Bennett delivers wry observations on the absurdity of modern living. His sharply-written routines, drawn from real-life experiences have been delighting audiences across the country; except in Yorkshire, where they are deeply suspicious of his shirts.
In 2013 Scott Headlined the prestigious Big Value Show for Just The Tonic at the Edinburgh Fringe, following in the footsteps of Sarah Millican, Jason Manford, Josie Long, Jim Jeffries and Seann Walsh, amongst others. He's one of the fastest rising stars on the circuit, with regular bookings at Glee, Frog and Bucket and Jongleurs comedy clubs.
“Naturally hilarious, the highlight of the evening” - ★★★★ - Broadway Baby

“Scott was fantastic, by far received the best response of the night. Brilliantly written material and wonderfully delivered” - Love Comedy

Lancashire comedian, Katie Mulgrew really likes making people laugh. It’s kinda her thing. She gigs all over the country in comedy clubs doing just that, to mostly success. She also makes her Mum laugh loads.
She’s done lots of lovely things whilst being a comedian like being tour support for The Boy With Tape On His Face and Vikki Stone. She has written for The News Quiz and you can hear her dulcet Northern tones featured on the BBC Radio 2 documentary series, The History of British Comedy. She got to be very silly indeed on a couple of episodes of the CBBC show, The Dog Ate My Homework. She recently co-hosted a Tv pilot on ITV2 called Lovefix.
Katie has performed three solo stand up shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is currently working on her fourth show when she’s not consumed with trying to keep the human she has made alive.
“Mulgrew is an engaging, likeable presence who doesn’t struggle to hold the audience’s attention. This is a well-structured thoughtful show.. radiating warmth” - Chortle
“charmingly honest... delightfully tender and thoroughly entertaining” - The Skinny
“...honest, un-cynical comedy that’s rough around the ages but tremendously warm” - Three Weeks
